The Life of Samuel Johnson, Vol. 1


Published August 25, 2008


LibriVox recording of The Life of Samuel Johnson Vol. I by James Boswell, read by LibriVox volunteers.

Boswell's Life of Samuel Johnson is widely considered to be the greatest English-language biography ever written. It was revolutionary in its efforts to represent Johnson as he was, celebrating his flaws as well as his genius, and in Boswell's decision to represent Johnson primarily by quoting his writings and relating personal anecdotes rather than relying on matters of public record. From the time of its publication till now, The Life of Johnson has been one of the most popular and influential books ever written. (Summary by Kirsten Ferreri.)
